French Onion Dip

Gear up for the Big Game with our take on an old classic. Adding caramelized onions is a score for the home team!


  • 1 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt  
  • 1 cup cream cheese or neufchatel, softened 
  • ½ cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 recipe caramelized onions (see below) 
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 tsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice 


In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together first three ingredients until well-combined. Add caramelized onions, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. Mix until just incorporated. 

Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and stir a few times to make sure everything is evenly distributed. 

Refrigerate in an airtight container for at least 2 hours, up to one week. Serve chilled with potato chips or veggie crudités. 

Ingredients for Caramelized Onions

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 4 medium yellow onions, halved and sliced 
  • ½ tsp sea salt 


Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes or until starting to soften. 

Add salt, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 50-80 minutes, stirring every few minutes, or until onions are very soft, golden brown and caramelized. Timing will depend on your type of pan, size of onions and heat of your stove. 

If onions start to stick to the bottom of pan, reduce heat to low. To speed things up after 50 minutes, turn the heat higher for more caramelization. Stir continuously to prevent burning. 

Garnish with green onions, chives, or parsley for a hint of green.
